A new image for the Raspberry Pi containing RTL-SDR software has been made available by tech enthusiast Gareth Hayes. The image contains all the software and drivers needed to get started with the RTL-SDR or HackRF on a 512MB Raspberry Pi. It is very useful as compilation of large software like GNU Radio is slow and problematic on an embedded PC like the Raspberry Pi. The image contains the following software:
- GNU Radio V3.7.5 built from source, including GNU Radio Companion
- Osmocom GNU Radio Source (and Sink) Blocks
- Support for DVB-T USB dongles
- Support for HackRF One (and Jawbreaker)
- RTL-SDR Suite
A few months ago we also featured a similar image for the BeagleBone Black.
